Saturday & Sunday Shop - New Stuff = Messy Desk


The following photo is not for the faint of heart.

This is my craft desk right now.

I've bought a few things and haven't put them away yet. 
Love these 2 Tim Holtz Sizzix dies and Embossing Folders!

I always try to use my new stuff before I put it away but sometimes - when I've been especially "shoppy" - I end up with such a mess that I have no room to use them!

Does this happen to you?  What does your craft desk look like?

BTW if you're wondering why there is a Habitant Pea Soup can on my desk (actually there are a couple of them) - it's because I like to cover them and make them into pen holders.

Check these out:

I picked up a damaged Atlas at the Used Bookstore and used it to cover this one.

This one's not quite finished - it needs "bling"

Also on my desk - well sort of off to the side - is a pile of leftover digital papers that need to be put away too.  I don't often print up an entire sheet of digital paper.  To save on ink I'll just print up what I need - most of the time that's a 1/4 or 1/2 sheet.



  1. my desk looks a lot like yours... it's hard to get creative. I love those covered cans! The atlas paper looks great on the pen holder.

  2. Oh it's not bad at all. Mine is always like that!! I did not realize you could print 1/2 and 1/4 sheets of paper. I must give that a try!!
